EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Update, Or Lack Thereof

EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Update, Or Lack Thereof

By Canon Rumors | April 27, 2015 | Canon Cinema Lens Rumors

We’re still waiting on the official announcement for the upcoming Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM. We reported earlier this month that would should see the announcement sometime in April, and April is nearing a close. We’ve always found that lens announcements are a moving target and nailing them down is quite difficult.

We haven’t heard any more information about the EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS replacement we reported about back in February.

A specification list for the EOS 6D Mark II has come about. It’s pretty much the complete opposite of what we posted a week or so ago.

  • 28MP
  • 6 fps
  • ISO 100 – 102400 (expandable to 204800)
  • new AF system (but not the same as on 5DS)
  • 98% viewfinder coverage
  • Single SD card slot
  • WiFi, NFC, and GPS
  • small improvements for video features

The rumor above suggests that Canon wouldn’t release a full frame camera with the same resolution as the Rebel series cameras, which are now at 24mp. We posted that the EOS 6D Mark II would retain its own sensor and would have a lower megapixel count than the predicted 28mp in the upcoming Canon EOS 5D Mark IV.

I personally believe consumers of full frame DSLRs in this day and age understand that not all pixels are created equal. I don’t believe megapixel count is part of the marketing strategies for DSLRs anymore, unless you’re talking about the high resolution 50mp+ camera.

Availability of the EOS 6D Mark II is said to be early 2016.

Canon EOS-1D X Mark II Talk [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | April 26, 2015 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We’re told there are a handful of Canon EOS-1D X Mark II bodies currently being tested in the field. Canon hopes to announce this camera some time in 2015.

We’re told the cameras employ a higher megapixel sensor than the 18.1mp on the current EOS-1D X. The autofocus system is all new with more AF points and there is “new technology” in the viewfinder display. There is new battery technology to help lower the overall weight of the camera. The LCD is larger than the current camera and there will be obvious ergonomic changes.

It isn’t known if there is a new DIGIC processor in the camera, or what card types are going to be supported.
